The Interview

I’m delighted to welcome Linda Lencovic of Kettle Yarn Co to the podcast this week. Linda hand dyes beautiful yarns on the South coast of England, which she rigorously tests to ensure they are low pilling and long-wearing.

Linda just launched The Boardwalk Collection, designed in her Islington DK, a 55% Bluefaced Leicester, 45% Silk blend. Check it out in the publication below.

There will be a KAL starting for the collection over in Linda’s Ravelry group on 1 August 2015.
